Sonic the Hedgehog is now available to stream on Netflix Australia

It’s one crazy busy mid-week in October for Netflix Australia thanks to the 93 new additions that are ready to be binged. Here’s what’s new on Netflix Australia this week and the top 10s for October 16th, 2021.

First of all, here are the past week’s top highlights:


Sonic the Hedgehog (2020)

Director: Jeff Fowler
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy | Runtime: 99 Minutes
Cast: Ben Schwartz, James Marsden, Jim Carrey, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell

What started out as one of the most controversial video-game to film adaptations in history, the studio re-gained a huge amount of favor amongst fans when they decided to go with a classic design for the world’s most famous blue hedgehog.

Tom, a small-town police officer, teams up with Sonic, a small blue Hedgehog that’s the fastest creature on Earth, against Dr. Robotnik, an evil genius with plans for world domination.


Twilight Saga (2008-2012)

Movies: 5
Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Romance
Cast: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Billy Burke

Love them or hate them, no one can deny Twilight was just as big as Harry Potter in the late 2000s and early 2010s. All five films are now ready to be binged at your leisure.

17-year-old high schooler Bella has just moved in with her father after leaving Phoenix, Arizona. After Bella’s life is saved by the mysterious Edward Cullen, it’s not long before she falls in love with the unusual boy. Soon, her eyes opened to a supernatural world when Edward reveals to Bella that he and his family are vampires.


My Name (Season 1) N

Seasons: 1 | Episodes: 8
Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller | Runtime: 50 Minutes
Cast: Han So Hee, Ahn Bo Hyun, Park Hee Soon, Kim Sang Ho, Lee Hak Joo

With the recent release of Squid Game, it’s going to take a monumental effort from My Name to match the level of popularity as the thriller. However, we definitely believe My Name will be popular enough in its own right and will impress millions of K-Drama fans around the world.

In order to find the truth about her father’s death, Yoon Ji Woo, a member of an organized crime ring, infiltrates the Police as an undercover agent.
